Common Core and Agenda 21
By
Sarge

The Obama administration, Bill Gates, the United Nations, and the Obama administration have been trying with all they’re worth to nationalize, along the lines of United Nations Globalization standards of education under the guise of Common Core. Many of the major schemas driving these very deeply disturbing “standards” was overlooked. It’s noted, official UN documents and statements by top administration officials expose plans to indoctrinate American children, and students around the world, into cookie-cutter replicants as “global citizens” ready for the “sustainable new world order”.

Over the past decades UN and world leaders boasted openly of the need to transform world-wide associations creating a top-down, deliberate, and restricted society completely at odds with national sovereignty, individual liberty, Judeo-Christian values, and Western traditions. Much of this is developed from a program known as Agenda 21.

Congress never approved Agenda 21, although Presidents Obama, Clinton and George H.W. Bush have all signed Executive Orders implementing it. 178 other world leaders agreed to it in 1992 at the Rio Summit.

Agenda 21 is a major component of UN policy development involving “sustainability” and is designed to insinuate itself into almost every facet of life from “sustainable energy” to “sustainable housing and community development” and planning through “sustainable educational goals and advancements in education”. The world population must be inured to accept this “vision” through the birth of new forms of learning. UNESCO calls it “Education for Sustainable Development.”

UNESCO, The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization declares its purpose is to contribute to peace and security by promoting international collaboration through education, science, and culture in order to further universal respect for justice, the rule of law, and human rights along with fundamental freedom proclaimed in the United Nations Charter. It is the heir of the League of Nations’ International Committee on Intellectual Cooperation.

UNESCO has 195 member states and nine associate members. (Wikipedia 2014)

UNESCO actually boasts of its plans. “The UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (2005-2014) seeks to mobilize the educational resources of the world to help create a more sustainable future,” the UN outfit explains. “Many paths to sustainability … exist and are mentioned in the 40 chapters of Agenda 21, the official document of the 1992 Earth Summit. Education is one of these paths. Education alone cannot achieve a more sustainable future; however, without education and learning for sustainable development, we will not be able to reach that goal.” http://www.thenewamerican.com/…/17930-common-core-and-un-agenda-21

UNESCO under the heading: Education for All Movement said:
“The Education for All (EFA) movement is a global commitment to provide quality basic education for all children, youth and adults. At the World Education Forum (Dakar, 2000), 164 governments pledged to achieve EFA and identified six goals to be met by 2015. Governments, development agencies, civil society and the private sector are working together to reach the EFA goals. (There are a 193 nations in the UN.)

The Dakar Framework for Action mandated UNESCO to coordinate these partners, in cooperation with the four other convenors of the Dakar Forum (UNDP, UNFPA, UNICEF and the World Bank). As the leading agency, UNESCO focuses its activities on five key areas: policy dialogue, monitoring, advocacy, mobilization of funding and capacity development. In order to sustain the political commitment to EFA and accelerate progress towards the 2015 targets, UNESCO has established several coordination mechanisms managed by UNESCO’s EFA Global Partnerships team. Following a major review of EFA coordination in 2010-2011, UNESCO reformed the global EFA coordination architecture.”

As is noted above Congress never approved Agenda 21, although Presidents Obama, Clinton and George H.W. Bush have all signed Executive Orders implementing it. 178 other world leaders agreed to it in 1992 at the Rio Summit. Now the most junior of the political dynastic outhouse it appears to have become, Jeb Bush, is championing the cause of Common Core. Jeb Bush has been particularly dismissive and insulting to anybody issues a protest he’s been paid over $5 MILLION dollars to represent is possibly standing on the perimeter of malfeasance as a public entity and potential candidate for the presidency.

In Common Core: Education Without Representation-Does U.N.’s Agenda 21 Education Mandate Push Common Core in USA? Christel Swasey 9-14-2012 http://www.whatiscommoncore.wordpress.com the questions are asked:
Since when do nations collectively finance global education?
Since when has the whole world agreed on what should be taught to the whole world?
Since when is the United States of America reduced to “accountable stakeholder” status over its own educational and financial decision making?

It happened in 2008 when Barack Obama committed the United States by Executive Order to create a Global Fund for Education to which Hilary Clinton wholeheartedly agreed. There was no vote by Congress on this matter.

The main argument used by people like Obama, the Bush Family and the Clinton’s is that Common Core is a state level program put together to acquire better test scores in alignment with other students around the world. They say it’s privately funded. They say it will work. All are false.

The National Governor’s Association by a heavily plurality of the vote agreed to sponsor and work with Common Core because they were told it would be controllable by local school boards. But, this same organization holds one-half of the copyright to Common Core and its directives. That provides a strong inducement to see that specific books and curricula are chosen to better finance the operations of the parent organization (NGA) as opposed to teaching the students more efficiently.

Now we see more and more states wanting to opt out because lesson plans provided by Common Core responsive textbook suppliers and publishers were seriously flawed and in many cases illogical in the texts and curricula supported. In other words the curricula makes NO sense and confuses children more than it helps. Likewise, parents and teachers are mystified as well.

Under the UNESCO banner there are six goals under the title of “Education for all”. These are supposed to be agreed upon internationally. But I agree with Swasey in her assertion the goals of the United Nations are antithetical to those of the United States and its sovereignty. These goals indicate a desire and drive to homogenize and pasteurize the human race to assure the sustainability of peace, justice and mi madre’s arroz con polo. In order to develop this homogeneity we’d have to mentally, morally and ethically sterilize all people so as to have them held in bondage under a ONE WORLD ORDER, One world government and one-world constitution.

Swasey again notes: “So Agenda 21 is a comprehensive plan of action to be taken by everyone. We all apparently have been signed up to agree, whether we agree or not. I’m already getting the communist creeps.”

As Big Business has injected itself into the mix and made control of educational development a’ la Common Core a profit based program of unknown wealth and profit potential, we must hold suspect any politician entering the field to play the game. Politicians live on contributions. Bill Gates has given more than $25 Million dollars to the National Governor’s Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers since 2009. This “investment” in the youth of America and their future productivity must be viewed with a jaundiced eye because the ink on Mega-bucks isn’t colorfast. It pollutes ideals and shades ethics immediately on contact. Remember: Jeb Bush has already been bought and paid for like a wild west hooker to the tune of over $5 Million Dollars, so anything he says has to be listened to with his employment making him suspect.

Local Control My Flying Red Butt!

Local Control My Flying Red Butt!

“The 2nd Annual MENA Common Core Conference will provide professional development to American curriculum schools in the region on effectively employing Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in the classroom. Our mission is to unite for one common goal: To be the most successful schools and teachers for our students while implementing CCSS.
On October 24 and 25, hundreds of schools, leadership teams, and teachers from across the region will gather in Dubai, to learn about the Common Core State Standards, share curricula and best practices, and network with each other. The event will unite administrators, teachers, and schools around improving teaching and learning for all of our students.” http://christopherlehman.wordpress.com/2013/08/29/upcoming-event-mena-common-core-conference-dubai-uae

Please note this conference is being conducted in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. That location is NOT three miles past Ville Platte and make a left. It’s in the Middle East. That would “sorta, kinda” put the lie to the idea Common Core is controllable locally (here in America) generally and in Louisiana specifically. It’s sponsored by multi-billion dollar industry giants to control education around the world. Bill Gates of Microsoft® fame is spearheading this in America along with other corporate giants extant in Washington D.C.

About two weeks ago a couple of education bloggers noticed an ad for a Common Core Conference scheduled for Oct 24-25 in Dubai UAE. The purpose of the conference, sponsored by Common Core Middle East and North Africa was to discuss the implementation of Common Core in the United States. They decided to start digging.

In 2002 the US Department of Education helped set up a NGO (Non-Governmental Organization) with the help of Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, 2 defense contractors and one teachers’ union to promote Global Learning. The NGO is now closely affiliated with the United States Chamber of Commerce and the Council of Chief State School Officers who are part owners of the Common Core Copyright. In fact all three are in the same Washington D.C. office building, located at 1 Massachusetts Ave. This is right around the corner from the National Governors Association which owns the other half of the Common Core copyright. In turn it’s noted one of the major “heaven and earth” moving politicos pushing the Common Core program is Jeb Bush who has received $5.4 million dollars to champion the cause. Jeb’s father George H.W. Bush was a champion of closer links to the United Nations and the UNESCO operations.

In 2004 Bill Gates signed a contract with the UN to help develop a plan for Global education. This document is available in PDF form at: http://www.unesco.org/new/fileadmin/MULTIMEDIA/HQ/CI/CI/pdf/strategy_microsoft_agreement.pdf

The links go back directly to the organizations involved proving to anyone this isn’t tin foil hat stuff. And that our government has been less than truthful when they say Common Core is state led. Besides Common Core Middle East and North Africa we also found Common Core is being implemented in Asia.

There’s a history here needs exploration. Robert Shepherd is a participant authority in the field of education publishing and has years of experience developing curriculum and textbooks. He notes in his monograph: The Remarkable But True Tale of the Birth of Common Core. http://www.cthebean.wordpress.com/…Robert-shepherd-the-remarkable-but-true-tale-of-the-birth-of-common-core

Traditionally publishing was an arduous art. This correspondent spend many dollars typing, editing, re-writing, editing some more and then developing a final draft of commentaries, articles and both short and long stories to be offered to publishers. Imagine the delight of writers the world over to find word processors could edit with a key touch and heal the broken thoughts so often the travail of any writer. It’s a matter of getting the right word in the right place. Mark Twain said it best: “The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.”

Therefore it was to the delight of such for moguls such as Bill Gates to determine that the relative cost differential between pen, paper, ink and postage was absolutely immense when compared to the cost of millions of “digitally inseminated and born” pixels on a readily erasable LED screen. From this he extrapolated the idea of becoming involved in education. His programs developed at Microsoft ® would develop the flagship programs used in the computers school children world-wide would need to power their educations. Steve Jobs of Apple® was also enlisted because Apple® would produce the computer hardware readily adaptable to Microsoft® programs. Because Microsoft® is the foundational platform of the majority of computers to be selected from the final result would be literally in the BILLIONS of dollars worldwide.

From this the idea emerged: how do we manufacture and develop this brave new world of computer driven education? The answer was apparent: create the computer-adaptive software keyed to student responses in proprietarily developed data bases they alone could access. No open source computer programs or resources would be allowed into this brave new world. This avoided the appearance of dictatorial and monopolist activity because the gravy is being spread over the meat and potatoes of multiple industrial powerhouses. The Rand Corporation, the United states Chamber of Commerce and the American Federation of Teachers.

It must be noted many of the prime movers of Common Core share a Common Address: 1 Massachusetts Ave., Washington D.C. Among these operations are: the Council of State School Officers http://www.ccsso,org/Contact_Us.html Snail mail: Council of Chief State School Officers One Massachusetts Avenue, NW • Suite 700.Washington, DC 20001-1431 voice: 202.336.7000 • fax: 202.408.8072

This organization OWNS one-half of the copyright for Common Core.

Then there is the Partnership for 21st Century Skills with its address noted as: 1 Massachusetts Avenue NW, Suite 700 ▫ Washington, DC 20001. Ph# (202) 312-6429 ▫ http://www.p21.org.

Not to be left behind, the National Governor’s Association (once chaired by Bobby Jindal) holds the other one-half of the copyright controlling Common Core profits. Their address is: Hall of the States, 444 N. Capitol St., Ste 267, Washington D.C. 20001-1512 Phone number (202) 624-5300 / Fax (202) 624-5313

The National Education Organizations | U.S. Chamber of Commerce has its Education and Job Development branch at: 1 Massachusetts Avenue NW, Suite 700 ▫ Washington, DC 20001. http://www.uschamberfoundation.org/content/national-education-organizations

It’s unknown to this writer as to how large the office is at Suite 700, 1 Massachusetts Avenue, but it seems it would be one whopper of a space to have so many coincidentally connected education related organizations all having ties to Common Core in one space.

The gist of this matter is the fact Common Core is NOT a locally controllable education program. The Bill and Melissa Gates Foundation along with other super-powerful corporations set to make more billions dangle billions before the funds starved school districts around the world. It promises educational standards directed by theorists specializing in studying education but not really ever practicing the delivery of education to anybody other than other theorists who rubber stamp their theses.

And THIS is the news

And THIS is the news!
By
Sarge

Good morning America, Ladies and Gentleman and all the ships at sea; I’m Walter Brainwaste and THIS is the news!

Canada was attacked by an alleged LONE WOLF terrorist(s). In a display of incredible horror determination and violent intensity a Canadian soldier was “allegedly” assassinated and the interior of the Canadian Parliament building was “allegedly” attacked, breached and violated. Except for the solid, dedicated and professional intervention of a gun toting Sergeant-at-Arms carrying only the strength of his character and a handgun stopped a murderous cur from executing more innocents. Residents of Ferguson Missouri immediately contacted Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Louis Farrakhan so they could properly resurrect Martin Luther King Jr. and blame the problem on the Jews or as Jackson said “Hymie”.

It’s been rumored the Obama Administration was apoplectic because they couldn’t get the Canadian government to accept the idea it was simple “workplace violence”. Obama, believing Canada was one of the 57 states he travelled to during his campaign, was at a complete loss for words. It was determined his Teleprompters® were unmanned and all of his speech writers were under quarantine for feverish projectile diarrhea affecting their delivery of pithy commentary covering his incompetence. This didn’t cause the president to miss a beat as he offered his condolences to the families of dead terrorists and assured America “Islam is still a religion of peace.” (A piece of you here; a piece of you there.)

Lieutenant Colonel Allen West added his firm assurance Allah would give the terrorists 70 virgin, pork eating homosexual prison inmates known as “Bubba bin waitinforya”. West assured us it would be a memorable admission to Paradise through Mecca’s back door and the gates of their most revered holy places.

A leading commentator said “Obama looked like a stammering idiot as he commented in a manner indicating he had no idea where the hell Canada is, but then, how would you really tell the difference from this presser and any other public comment the man offered.” (It was noted the commentator was NOT John Boehner who was said to be ossified, a drained glass of hooch and a burning cigarette lolling in his hands as he snored, asleep in his easy chair located in his Congressional Offices.)

Harry Reid immediately called for an indictment of the Koch Brothers for their steadfast refusal to supply cola for Senate functions. Nancy Pelosi was interviewed and in a fiery response to this “incredible act of right wing conspiratorial violence” stated outright she would wait for the indictment to be issued and acted upon so that “we can see what’s in it away from the controversy.” Her face then collapsed as her Botox injections melted from the inanity of her response. Barbara “Botox” Boxer issued no statement because her cheekbones were fused and her hair plugs were falling out.

John McCain suggested we carpet bomb Detroit to avoid an act of war with Canada but to show our support for whatever it was they decided to do unless it didn’t work for his purposes on the particular day the bombing occurred. Lindsey Graham, McCain’s wannabee clone, stood by looking intense, his brow furrowed, molten pudding flowing from his intense gaze and fists clenched as he looked constipated; assured us he would form a blue-ribbon committee as soon as he could arrange his chairmanship of it. He assured it would be one more waste of taxpayer’s time and money.
Marco Rubio suggested we sponsor a Dream Act for illegal aliens and help them to settle in all of the Canadian Provinces with the help of La Raza and Jennifer Lopez. Rubio stated he’d select Lopez as his running mate (wink-wink-giggle), once he’s nominated. He said it was a tough choice between Jennifer and George Lopez but what the heck, they’re both Hispanic. He did note Jennifer has better looking legs and hooters. She also sings better.

Senator Cruz said he’d build a wall, not a fence, on the northern border sure to increase employment and stop terrorists’ entry into this country. Mary Landrieu said she’d vote for the wall even though she thought it was dumb. It was later explained to her where Canada is and how there’s no chance she could really expect to buy a mansion there without giving up her citizenship in Washington D.C.

In closing Edwin Edwards offered sage commentary to the Canadian government: “I believe you’re only as old as the woman you feel” and “I don’t use Viagra, I’m a donor”. His latest wife Alia “Candy” Immaho bin seen dalite” led him to bed, gave him a glass of warm milk and started a slow, undulating Dance of the Seven Veils. Edwards fell asleep on the third veil.

I’m Walter Brainwaste signing off. This program was brought to you by our sponsor: Aloha Snack Bar, Principal Operator – Ibrahim Ibn Sittinonaloadofpoopoo allday. They’re purveyors of fine Islamic Indonesian Sandwiches and Treats.

WAIT!!! WAIT!!! I’ve just been handed this late breaking news.

President Obama, the First Lady, their children and the White House leech, Valerie Jarrett will travel to the Aloha Snack Bar as soon as the multi-million dollar junket’s plans can be solidified, the records sealed and Air Force One can be fueled with organic jet fuel costing millions more than standard petroleum based gas. An aide to the president who asked to remain anonymous was overheard saying: “Maybe we can recycle one of the b^&tard’s old campaign speeches to power the jet on his Methane expulsion.”

That’s it from MSNBCBSCNN.com, I’m Walter Brainwaste and this has been Thanks for listening.

Getting pithy

Getting pithy
By
Sarge
Pith: (noun) The central and most important part of something such as an argument or discussion.

When I was in school I was pleasantly surprised to be given the task of gathering frogs for dissection in class. I managed to trap enough specimens to make my teacher happy and torture many of the lovely young ladies I wanted to impress. (It was a miserable failure as you might guess.) From the capture we moved on to the nastier element of learning how to euthanize the specimen humanely.

After shoving a “pick” through the back of the frog’s head and separate the spinal cord from the base of the brain, but I quickly figured dying in bed at an advanced age was better than listening to that crunch of wiggling the pick to assure the animal’s demise. Anyway (moving on) we did the dissections and learned we’d never be happy as frog assassins.

Recently I determined most of our local, regional and national representatives (at all levels of government) might need to be pithed. They don’t seem to use their intellect as much as they should. They seem to be disconnected from their constituencies and in general they appear to believe they blithely may do whatever the hell they choose to do without regard to the voices of their electors.
Maybe government needs to be metaphorically separated from its corporeal existence and dissected to figure out just what it is makes these people think they control us rather us controlling their actions.

Government is a social organism. It’s a living breathing eating sleeping working thing capable a parasitic destruction of the host it infests. It feeds on the needs of people too weak to fight it because they draw sustenance from their symbiotic (or interdependent) relationship with the host. Government grows with the refusal of the parasite to release from the host. Remoras are fish living off of their placement and attachment to sharks. They remove other parasites from the shark’s skin. In turn the Shark remains disease free from the Remora removing the infestation. Both benefit.
But, the rest of the society is scavenged by these parasites detrimentally. So this is where I pith (sic) everybody off. Welfare recipients, social pariahs such as Congressmen and Senators, Assemblymen, Parish/City Council members and other participants without term limits draw their self-image and self-importance from their positions in government. Without government they are nothing beyond the rest of us and as such, feel slighted by fate. Hence we have their belief we can’t live without them. They all attach themselves to the government and draw sustenance and therefore survival from their sucking the host dry.

I personally am tired of welfare recipients, social pariahs i.e. Congressmen and Senators, Assemblymen, Parish/City Council members, village aldermen and women and other government parasites without term limits and generationally are killing the fatted calf for their own benefit.
We’re continually raising debt ceilings and printing scrip with ever lessening value both nationally and internationally so as to tax the world economic system to a point of fiscal and economic exhaustion. We have no “standard” (gold, petro or silver) on which to base our currency other than the “full faith, credit and integrity” of governments showing they have no integrity when it comes to serving the people. Government thrives on the infection developing in the flailed flesh and scarred hides of the people whipped into submission to support those who’ll not contribute. The government advances by walking over the skeletonizing and emaciating good will of their citizens.

This must stop soon or there’ll be no return to what’s been accepted as “normal” in American society. The generalized disaffection and spiritual malaise the American people are suffering from is a result of being poisoned by avarice, greed and personal drives of all of the participants in this benign assault of the scavengers’ needs.

More and more people grow dissatisfied daily. More and more they suffer the weight of greater and greater numbers of parasites suckling from the teats of a weakening and diseased host.

It’s the American Middle Class needs to have these parasites removed.

Kennedy got it right

Kennedy got it right
By
Sarge

John F. Kennedy said: “There are risks and costs to a program of action. But they are far less than the long-range risks and costs of comfortable inaction.”

Once in a while I get stuck. Many call it Writer’s Block. I call it a bunch of aggravating schmutz stuck in my head. It’s mental constipation. You know there’s something there, you just can’t get it out, hence the quote.

Obama has a history of walking on a political treadmill. He keeps walking but never understands he’s going nowhere. He goes through the motions of ambulation but has no idea he’s got no destination other than in his head and when he stops he’ll be the same sad excuse for a political with no real success to his credit.

He got Nancy Pelosi and her companion crones to pass the Affordable Care Act (ACA) which neither shows any care for the people it’s smothering nor is it affordable. For this we’ve seen the treadmill start rolling. From the ACA he moved to making sure we completely pulled out of Iraq. In a procedure akin to coitus interruptus he started the act and pulled us out too soon and now we have ISIS/ISIL to contend with; but only after he underestimated them so badly Iraq is on the table like a fat turkey being carved from the rest of the Middle East. Now nobody feels they accomplished anything of good and everybody is dissatisfied and frustrated.

Then, he started to make noise about closing Guantanamo. Then he didn’t. Then he tried to get more and more terrorists tried in the continental borders of America. That went over like a passing gas in a Hazmat Suit. Through his sock-puppet Eric Holder has stonewalled investigations of governmental malfeasance in supplying known Mexican criminals with firearms and refusing to cooperate with Congress investigating the Benghazi Incident.

Obama’s never been one to show any special element of humility. It’s more like hubris and of an extreme sort. In order to assure we appreciate his “superior” intellect and political skill and acumen, he advised us he was in the Top Ten presidents in history. It could be said; “not so far Kemo Sabe”. He’s pretty much in the cellar as far as his batting average concerns legislation sponsored, initiated personally or passed by the Congress. This is because he won’t leash his guard dog (more a rabid coyote) Harry Reid so legislation offered by the Republican directed House of Representatives can move forward.

Obama can’t get anything done through accepted Constitutional procedures. He’s resorted to Executive Orders to get things done. This is a complete annulment of and insult to the Constitution and the American people. But, he keeps walking that particular treadmill going nowhere.
Now we have Ebola to contend with. The fear mongering and efforts to control panic have worked antithetically to assure the American people are protected. Obama is more worried about damaging the economic growth of “emerging nations” than protecting American citizens. He won’t stop the entry of people from Ebola affected countries. He can’t command the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to develop and initiate specific and effective procedures to prevent infection of care givers and people simply sitting next to an effected person when his/her temperature spikes at 104 degrees or unloads intestinally in a projectile fashion either orally or otherwise.

Obama has finally fallen through that fuzzy pink cloud he’s been floating on since becoming the first black president. Now he’s being seen as a carbuncle needing to be lanced, disinfected and removed from the corpus of a failed presidency. He’s beginning to understand the only thing going to be entered concerning his administration will be placed behind the administrations of William Henry Harrison, Warren Harding and Herbert Hoover.
The motor keeps spinning the rotor makes Obama seem to move toward a sunset never growing closer but surely will trap him in the darkness of history refusing revision. To gain our justice all we need do is tell the truth about him.

But, we must NEVER forget the damage he’s done with “long-range risks and costs of comfortable inaction.”

Just ramblin’ and amblin’

So; where do we go from here? We have Obama actually cancelling junkets and in general confusing the bejeezus out of everybody because he’s paying attention to Ebola. Maybe it’s because he said his policies and administrative programs are going to be tested in the midterm elections.
He can’t walk that back. It’s a clear cut statement he’s seen his legacy won’t be worth a damn unless he gets some points on the board. And lately, he’s been pretty slack on the lay ups. He’s managed to tick off his base and forced every major senatorial candidate into running from him like rats from a sinking ship rather than have him campaign for them.

There’s only one problem with this epiphany he’s come to. That would be the point nobody believes a bloody thing the fool has to say. He’s said so much that’s been refuted, controverted and just flat proven to be wrong his credibility is nil. He’s come to think we’ll swallow anything as long as it’s delivered with sugar-coated oratory and good ship lollipop optimism. It was a golden time of hope for change and the delightful maxim of “Yes we can” and “Forward” as all good commissars were instructed to harangue the masses with to increase production and show fealty to the state.
Now we have a wing-shot duck plummeting to the sewage he processed and his presence as a lame-duck is evident. The guy never was too good at that “timing thing” once he was inaugurated.

His overwhelming need to abandon Iraq has turned around to bite him in the butt. ISIS/ISIL isn’t a JV squad to be minimized and underestimated. It’s a Radical Islamist juggernaut tearing the Middle East apart. Obama’s isolation and rejection of Israel has not only threatened that state, it’s placed us in a position of revulsion and distrust concerning our sincerity as an ally. Having Leon Panetta divulge Israel secret battle preparations was an example of Obama’s duplicity and treachery. He’s president and don’t you forget it. Telling Benjamin Netanyahu Israel would have to return to the pre-1968 borders to ensure “peace” in the region was one of the stupidest things a sitting president has ever done.

But we’re supposed to accept he really has his head in the game where it comes to Ebola. From the beginning it’s been apparent Obama listens to only those people he wants to listen to. He only does something if it’s political. He’s never been a sincere person.

Somebody should tell him having his thumb stuck up his butt isn’t the same as having your finger on the pulse of international diplomacy. He can’t spell foreign policy but he’s better than anybody else at it as he’s assured us when he said he was in the Top Ten presidents of all time.
But, he knows what to do about Ebola.

Twice today, he interrupted the spin of the earth to let us know he was doing something about Ebola. He’s going to send the National Guard to Africa to fight Ebola through Continuing Education. Clever don’t you think? And he didn’t go anywhere to raise campaign funds. He also wouldn’t allow the White House staff to say what all of his and Michelle’s vacations cost the taxpayers. We should be impressed.

We’ll also be introduced to an Ebola “Czar”. This would be a person taking the position of overseeing our responses to Ebola and its ultimate retreat from its position as distraction and debacle du jour. We must remember the word Tsar or Czar is the Cyrillic translation of Caesar. It means the appointee will have status and a title but will be stabbed in the back whenever his cohorts feel it appropriate to protect their interests. Good luck to the patsy gets that job. I offer this advice to anybody accepts it.

Don’t go to the Toga Party.

So; it’s been a fun day. Obama’s been masquerading as a president. He’s been fighting to gain the high ground after sitting in a sewage ditch and in general it’s been funny as hell to watch him posing as competent.

Riding shotgun

Riding shotgun
By
Sarge

I awoke this morning and conducted my early morning program. Sit, shower, shave and ship out shipshape. Turn on the coffee, take my medications, and kick-start my computer to assess the latest damage done by politicians looking to cover their asses before they saddle-up to conduct their regular pilgrimage to their Mecca: Washington D.C.

I started reading the site “ROLL CALL” while awaiting the coffee to finish brewing. Under the specific site: ROLL CALL: 218 (Because that’s the only number matters in the U.S. House) It’s attributed to Matt Fuller.

After reading the erudite explanation of how partisan politics has infected the dialogue rather than determine what it’s going to take to make the people in power (who coincidentally are scratching and clawing the earth to cover the big doo-doo pile they’ve left behind on this issue) can better assure America doesn’t become the next Ebola disaster, I found this commentary by a citizen named Layla. (I’ve cut/pasted her commentary as follows.)

Layla
“I have some breaking news for Congress: Nobody is listening to you or the President anymore. We have seen lie after lie go unpunished. There is zero accountability, zero credibility in Congress and this administration.
The southern border invasion continues, while the Obama’s, Reid, Pelosi and Feinstein toast to “border security”. You continue to ignore our current immigration laws while you discuss amnesty for illegals and ignore the wishes of American families. 92 million of them are still without jobs and you provide more visas to American companies so they can bring in more foreign labor to steal American jobs.
You build housing for illegals, while American families go homeless. Record numbers are on food stamps.
And now you are failing in your only Constitutional duty, to protect the borders of the United States of America and to keep the people safe.
This is all happening on your “watch”. Why would anybody want to reelect any of you? Seriously.”

So; I had my column written for me. I thank Layla, Matt Fuller and ROLL CALL 218 for this understanding of what’s happening and what’ll continue to happen as long as politics supersedes common sense. It’ll continue to happen as long as posture in public disguises the uprightness of character in reality. It’ll continue as long as people allow it to continue rather than exercise their God-given and Constitution driven, codified and elaborated upon rights and responsibilities to self-govern rather than hand the reins of government to the highwaymen robbing us of those very rights. We must “ride shotgun” on this stagecoach to protect these rights and show we demand accountability from these people.
But, this is business as usual. Determine who’s got the loudest voice; who has the greatest pull with the people, who’s got the volume to overwhelm the peoples’ protests and shout loudest; “it’s the other guy that’s to blame!” That’s their battle cry. And, it serves nobody but them.

We need a standardized quarantine program that protects Americans. I’m sorry to say this because it sounds callous and cold: but I care about Americans and not as much about foreigners. We get derision and criticism rather than thanks for our aid. We finance our enemies because our leaders can’t figure out it’s the guy with the gun shooting at you is the enemy. It’s the guy with the gun whose followers share his ideology as they shoot at you is the enemy. It’s the guy with the gun who is the hero of the guys in the street calling for our heads to be cut off at the shoulders is the enemy. And it’s the guys keep putting themselves in front of the people they claim to represent, but really serve no others than they, are the enemies of America.

Ebola is the latest episode indicating just what and who is the real enemy of the people. Those that hold meetings rather taking concrete, constructive actions to protect the AMERICAN people are the enemy and should be deposed.

Thanks Layla. I agree with your last statement: “This is all happening on your “watch”. Why would anybody want to reelect any of you? Seriously.”

The Horsemen Ride?

The Horsemen Ride?
By
Sarge

Most politicians disgust me. The pandering, the lies and the convenient manipulation of the exact words chosen so they can speak endlessly while saying nothing makes me want to euthanize them. That would be in the sense of putting them out of my misery by whatever means removes them from the spotlight; like maybe dropping that spotlight on them.

We’ve got a real problem with Ebola. Part of it’s based in politicians not knowing anything about Ebola. Obama gets his information from hand-picked “experts”. The information is filtered through a committee of speech-writers charged with putting his thoughts on a Teleprompter® so he looks like he knows what he’s talking about. He doesn’t.

In light of how stupid he looks now, I’d say he should fire Valerie Jarrett and the White House Speech Writers’ pool. Maybe it’s more of a Septic Tank than a pool. Speech writing requires more than being grammatically correct. But in light of Obama’s job market I’d probably accept a paying job spell-checking his latest drivel fest.

Obama has dropped the ball again. This fumble was retrieved by his CDC Director Tom Frieden. Friedan’s run as far as he can in the wrong direction like “Wrong Way Corrigan”. Corrigan was nicknamed “Wrong Way” after he flew from Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn, New York, to Ireland, though his flight plan was filed to return to Long Beach, California. How he failed to recognize he was over the Atlantic Ocean and NOT the Great Plains is beyond me. But Friedan can’t get it right either.

Friedan’s continually underestimated Ebola’s threat to the world. He’s down-playing the errors made by his administration. He’s not commanded standardized, proven preventative and precautionary steps were taught to every health worker in Emergency Rooms and Intake/Triage positions in all hospitals across the nation. Friedan keeps stressing Ebola can’t be spread unless in contact with bodily fluids yet we keep finding more and more people being infected.

In Friedan’s efforts to avoid panic he’s allowing infected personnel to enter infected hospital rooms, leave work and travel around the country. They roam freely until they become obviously symptomatic. This disease has a 21 day incubation period. Why are these people not quarantined until 21 days AFTER they’ve treated the afflicted?

There’s been NO real threat of this scale since the Influenza Epidemic of 1918 killed 16 Million people world-wide. It was spread by airborne particulates (sneezing, coughing and expectorated phlegm and sputum). Ebola is allegedly NOT communicable by airborne transmission. That’s great! Huzzah! As long as you don’t “hospital fold” diarrhea ridden sheets and re-use pillow cases vomited on by an infected patient you’re “golden”.
How do we know the Ebola Virus can’t “piggy-back” onto another virus, such as Rhino-Virus (Common Cold), Enterovirus D68 or some other viral juggernaut afflicting mankind? Friedan can’t even tell us how this disease is being allowed to spread even though he assures us it can’t be spread unless the carrier is symptomatic. We can’t diagnose “symptomatic” for 21 days. That’s 21 days a living, breathing disease breeding individual can mingle with the open populace. And immediately upon becoming symptomatic, the carrier infects any and all he may come in contact with. Isn’t a sneeze or a cough a transfer of microscopic, discharged SPUTUM and possibly PHLEGM?

I’m not a great believer of apocalyptic doom and gloom prognostications, but the Bible says in Revelation 6:8: “I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.” The four horsemen are “precursors” of even worse judgments awaiting us in the tribulation (Revelation chapters 8–9 and 16).

We’re at war across the world. Famine is a terrible reality in 19 nations on the planet. Ebola is spreading across the world and here at home. The “wild beasts of the earth” are coming out of their natural habitats to challenge man for the food available in human enclaves and neighborhoods.

It does kinda make you wonder.

The Screen Door

The Screen Door
By
Sarge

Years ago I lived in a pleasant rental property carrying a provincial air more reminiscent of the little houses on the prairie than sitting on the fringe of a neighborhood in Jacksonville, Florida. It was well constructed, with sufficient windows to allow the sea-borne breezes accompany the ocean currents pushing north. The only reason I left it was because of employment elsewhere.

The house is a pleasant memory colored by time and melancholy. But it wasn’t a totally idyllic scene. There are always flies in the ointment and weevils in the flour if you’re not careful.

One day, I walked to the screen door protecting the kitchen from the back porch. A cat was attached to the screen in that stupid pose cats assume when attached to something with their claws. I shot the cat with my weapon of choice for such cases: a squirt-gun. The cat pulled himself loose with a speed and acrobatic skill no other animal can reproduce. He split the screen in all four areas his paws once held and I, procrastinator that I am, said I’d fix it later.

Yeah. Right!

I let the problem ride for a while and then for a longer while. As it was spring I felt I had better things to do being newly married (wink-wink), I decided to simply forget about it. It was a dumb move.

Soon the house was taken over by the insect realm. The Pearl Harbor strike force held nothing approaching the number of mosquitoes and biting flies took to dive bombing, biting and in general discomfiting and discomforting my bride and myself. I’m allergic to mosquito stings and produce a swelling that, though not deadly is quite uncomfortable. My bride was allergic to insecticides. What could we do?

She went home to live with her parents. I went to work swatting and killing. I did a poor imitation of Rachel Carson’s book, “Silent Spring” and attacked with the intent to annihilate anything flew, buzzed, stung or bit. I tried “natural” insecticides. I tried attracting more birds. I tried every known folk cure offered by the elderly. So I broke down knowing I’d need to use insecticides more the equivalent of Hiroshima than Geneva. I was fully aware I’d need to hand wash every surface to remove any chemical residue lest my girl come in contact with the poison and suffer for it.
As I couldn’t afford a professional exterminator, I suited up, sprayed the heck out of the place, dumped all water from containers and blasted city hall for NOT having cleaned the ditches in the areas of the malarial dive bombers making me look like the welted and inflamed hemorrhoid they surely felt I was becoming. The vermin never subsided.

One day one of the city workers sent to endure my wrath explain the process of cleaning the ditches and the neighborhood spraying to come made an observation. “You know it would help a lot if you mended that screen on the door. It keeps the bugs out. Then you can plant some Lavender or get some Cedar Chips and place them under the windows outside. Skeeters don’t like ‘em. But you have to fix that screen or they’ll keep coming back.”
They drained the ditches and a small pond more a big puddle than a water park. I ran to the hardware store, bought a bunch of fragrant cedar chips, planted some Lavender and within a short period of time I had not only a “skeeter” free zone but a pleasant smelling household when the breeze blew as well.

So what’s the point? Have I wasted this much time telling a simple country fable to bore you? Or, is there a more nefarious intent noted. (Go with the nefarious intent. I don’t want to wreck my reputation).

The southern border is the screen with the rips in it. The unsecured border is like the screen in that it has no integrity. It doesn’t stop any bugs. The border stops no illegals entering America.

The government is the screen and it’s badly ripped in that it has no integrity. It’s letting the bugs in and now; it’s allowing Ebola patients in without being fully aware the best way to avoid any type of infestation is to not allow it into your country in the first place. The best way to avoid a pestilence like Ebola is to quarantine the affected countries and people until they are safe and well.

You don’t let them through the screen in the first place like this administration is allowing.

Some cures are simple. Those responsible for resolving the issues can be too stupid to accept the simplicity of the cure. But, I’m wouldn’t want to name names in this statement.

Seeing the real path

Seeing the real path
By
Sarge

“Increasingly, I am thinking that Barack Obama does not know the difference between good and evil. Now I realize implying that someone can’t make that distinction, really the difference between right and wrong, is a harsh condemnation indeed, but I think it is something that should be examined in Obama’s case since it would explain many of the extraordinary missteps of his presidency. Those missteps are only escalating at the present moment as evil stalks the globe at an ever rising pace.” – Roger L. Simon/PJ Media

The greatest misstep is assuming Obama’s actions are anything but calculated, measured and well-thought out examples of destruction by neglect. If a person or an organization wishes to enact a strategy, it’ll wear down the opponent by debilitating his resources from within through not using them; in essence they degrade from rot and disuse.

The Obama administration has taken the tack of not using what’s always been the strength and structure of American foreign policy as a presence unto itself. American foreign policy was once a resolute and solid sea-wall holding back the on-rush of tsunami-like power exerted against the free world by communist elements and brush fire wars used to empower those elements. That sea-wall has been ignored, denied the necessary inspection and upgrades it takes to ensure the wall is restored regularly and bolstered to rebuff any newly developed threats cast against it.

Obama has taken the tack of continually looking inward like a Zen master contemplating his navel and seeking to understand the lint sticking there. Any conflict appears before him is treated to a gentle stroking of the back of the belligerent’s hand as opposed to delivering the back of his hand to the side of the belligerent’s head. Sooth and counsel as opposed to command and deny the progress of the belligerent.

Soft is the new hard and it’s about as effective as darkness becoming the new light. You can’t hold off lions like ISIS/ISIL, al Qaeda, al Nusra and the Russian Bear with girly slaps You can’t make people stop being aggression until you show them superior strength and resolve in the war of wills.

Obama has NO experience to use as a compass in directing his practice of foreign policy in the real world. He wants the United Nations (UN), a group with no troops immediately at hand to intervene, no weaponry it may move to a front to combat aggression and no nukes to show Russia should Putin really get his testosterone stroked in the shadows of his mind. NATO needs Viagra to make up for its impotence.

The UN is worthless and useless. The member states have no dog in the hunt. Who is going to attack Borneo or Peru or Argentina after the United States, England and France fall? Nobody: they’ll just walk in and take control. The bad guys will do this after rejecting the disjointed palaver of a bunch of weak willed, tone deaf and ineffectual little nations couldn’t be bothered to defend themselves when it needed to be done.

No. Obama isn’t conducting missteps. He’s walking directly toward his objective of weakening America to the point where we’ll be at our weakest and the monsters within us will sicken and destroy us as the viral, parasitic disease ridden vermin they are.

Those parasitic, vermin like Valerie Jarrett, Al Sharpton, Louis Farrakhan, Chuck Schumer, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, John Boehner, Mary Landrieu; all people seeking to shift America toward Progressive, Socialist, Marxist and Fascist/Communist (bingo!) entitlement programs diluting the American ideal of just reward for extended effort are the infection killing the American Dream.

There are no missteps at the level we’re talking about; that level where an agenda is engaged and propelled forward to take over a nation and drop it to its knees; then subjugate the populace and remove them from their liberties. That’s a very deliberate and studied path the Obama’s following to conquer and destroy a nation and its people. Political Correctness obstructs our vision and forces us toward acquiescence to evil.

“You must see the enemy’s real path if you will stop him as he turns on you”
